Reviews for Tuscan Salmon Pasta
"I loved this dish. It made a fast and simple dinner with just garlic bread on the side."
"Very good and nutritious. When I entered the recipe into a calorie-counting program (MyFitnessPal), it came out to 660 calories so it's not too, too far off. It's all that olive oil! I was shocked when I first calculated the calories in my homemade pesto sauce which also has a lot of olive oil.)"
"The nutritional information MUST be for the whole recipe not individual servings. It doesn't make any sense. Also, a 2 cup serving is a lot larger than the typical serving size. Any other thoughts out there?"
"51g of fat??? I don't think so!"
"We used frozen salmon filets from Aldi's and they are very economical. I could not find fresh Rosemary so I used Italian flat leafed parsley. I made the recipe gluten-free by using brown rice pasta. My whole family loved it...including my 8,5, and 2 year old kids! I have made this more than once and will make on a regular basis!"
"This would be a much more economical meal if you used canned wild salmon and could easily be expanded to feed a family."
"I've made this a few times. LOVE it!"
"Is there any way this calorie count can be correct? 863 calories for a serving of pasta and salmon?!"
